A loan of $950 helped grow beans.


José's story

José is 31 years old and lives with his much-loved partner. With the loan he plans to buy fertilizer and other products for his bean crop so that it will grow well. He wants to purchase good quality beans as well as hire laborers to assist with the application of the products and the maintenance of the plants once they have grown. In this way he will be assured a good harvest.

José is trying to benefit from the good climatic conditions and soil of the area, as well as his many years' experience growing basic grains. He also wishes to buy the best products and of the best quality so that his fields will be productive and healthy and the harvest good.

With the money he earns from the harvest he wants to use it for the well being of his family, achieve some family goals, and continue investing in his farm. This is José's first loan with FUDECOSUR. He has not had any loans previously with state banks, but FUDECOSUR offered him a loan with good terms and low interest rates.
